Ep 14 - Strange New Worlds: Star Trek is Back
Fire up your warp drive and order some Postum from the replicator! It's time for a super nerdy, super Mormon discussion of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. We talk about the return to episodic storytelling, the theme of sacrifice, and which episode was based on a classic science fiction short story by Ursula LeGuin. Find out which episode disappointed us and which returning villain freaked us out. As one of our guests said, Star Trek is back!
